Aiello, Redux Redux

We were going to stop taking shots at Wendy Aiello because she invited us to sit at her table at the Denver Press Club’s annual Gridiron Show (and because Walt kept eyeing us with a “I’m-not-afraid-to-stick-this-fork-in-your-throat” look), but then the entertainment was so godawful* we decided she was fair game anyway.

So imagine our glee when Wendy appeared in this morning’s Bill Husted column. Unfortunately, there really wasn’t much to make fun of. Successful restaurant launch. Placido Domingo. Big write-up in the News. No “PR Princess” comments. But after being a little optimistic with our over/under on Wendy Aiello mentions for both Bill and Penny Parker, we’re taking any mentions we can find. And we’re still gunning for you, Wendy (but please don’t mention that to Walt).

*We enjoyed Andrew Hudson’s band with that skinny lead singer guy

If the Denver Press Club offers to make you its Damon Runyon Award winner, you might want to think twice. Of the 15 past winners, six have since died – Tim Russert, Mike Royko, Herb Caen, Molly Ivins, David Halberstam and Ed Bradley.

Well, now Bill Husted is just mocking us. You know our thoughts about ESPN Zone “sightings.



We Didn’t Factor This Into Our ‘Wendy Aiello Mentions’ Contest

If you have a few spare antidepressants sitting around (and if you are in PR you probably do), you may want to offer them to Penny Parker, Bill Husted and Wendy Aiello. The number of official DNC soirees has been cut 96 percent.

Last week, we chastised Bill Husted for his lame sightings around town. Well, this week 5280 shows him how it’s done: porn king Larry Flynt at Del Frisco’s

Bill Husted may have the lamest “Sightings” subject in the history of his column today: “Adam Foote at ESPN Zone for lunch Wednesday.”
